3:32 p.m. - Cox only made one qualifying pass yesterday and it was not a great one, so his opportunity to collect track data was limited. Anderika grabbed the top spot in the first session and no one was quicker the second time out yesterday.

This time, Anderika had his lowest ET of the weekend so far to take the win. Cox smoked the rear tires off the starting line and shut the car off. Anderika will have a bye in round two.
